I can be painfully honest at times, especially if I know you can take it. I don't believe there's a point in anything else. I'll respect you much more if you just tell me, good or bad.
I spend a lot of time teaching/mentoring entrepreneurship as well, which involves working with anyone from high school students to Fortune 500 companies. I also like to give as much of my time/knowledge/skills to benefit non-profits as possible.
I like most foods/styles of food. Spicy is always good. I've yet to find one type of cuisine I don't like.
Music? Queen and the Barenaked Ladies are some of my all-time favorites. I have sort of an eclectic music choice....it's not uncommon for me to listen to Jazz, Capoeira music, Techno/House, and Oldies all in one sitting.
If you haven't checked out the Pickin' On series, you're seriously missing out.
I have a soft spot for gingers and girls on bicycles. Let's not even talk about gingers on bicycles. (For all of you ladies that bemoan not being a ginger, no, this isn't a requirement)

1) Minimize use of searchable attributes. Spend time imagining spending an evening talking to them.
2) If you send someone a message, make it personal and make it real.
3) Keep the list of rule-outs to a minimum. Don’t rely on similarity. New experiences are good.
4) Get off-line quickly. Experience them as fully as possible ASAP.
5) Expect lots of first encounters and lots of failures — one hit is worth many misses
6) Give each encounter time to be an experience. Have a full, deep, enjoyable conversation. Don’t be in an evaluative mindset. You can evaluate later. Don't give up in the first 2 minutes - people usually say dumb things at first.
7) Don’t expect “experts" to know who would be a good match for you. Nobody really knows.
